Lucifer: Manions of the Silence

Lucifer, Vol. 6: Mansions of the SilenceLucifer, Vol. 6: Mansions of the Silence by Mike Carey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ever wonder where eternal creatures like angels and demons go when they get “killed”? I have! According to Mike Carey’s LUCIFER comics, they go to a place called Mansions of the Silence. And in this, the sixth volume of the collected series, Lucifer and several of the supporting characters from the series so far take a trip to the Mansions of Silence to rescue the spirits of Elaine and Mona. One of the things I’m really enjoying about LUCIFER is how minor characters from earlier arcs will often reappear and take on more important roles later. Carey continues to elicit empathy from the reader for these characters. too, which is no small feat when most of them are demons.
